Trump, Biden make late push in key states

The final 24 hours before Election Day will feature both presidential candidates and their supporting casts covering all corners of Pennsylvania.

Welcome to PV Tech's live coverage of the 2020 US Election, where President Donald Trump seeks re-election against Democrat hopeful Joe Biden.

At a mass rally in Florida last night, he mocked Joe Biden for holding small events during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We're done with the chaos, the tweets, the anger the hate, the failure, the irresponsibility". In Pennsylvania, Trump is trailing behind Biden by four percentage points, according to the latest average of polls by Real Clear Politics. The decision has made the U.S. an outlier on the world stage in relation to climate change, but has appealed to elements of Trump's base.

The neighborhood scene, at dusk during a break in daylong rain, was picturesque, but felt more like a campaign stop by a young wannabe stumping in Iowa six months before the first nomination contest.

Biden said, "Every single one of those votes mattered". Meanwhile, the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll revealed on Sunday that Trump leads in Florida, gaining at least 50% of support among potential voters in the battleground state versus the former vice president's 48%.

A full-on Sunday focus on Philadelphia apparently is not enough.

Vice President Mike Pence, meanwhile, will hold rallies in MI and Pennsylvania.

They featured thousands of supporters with "Make America Great Again" caps. "No, no that was a false report", Trump said in North Carolina.

Voters at Biden's events didn't appear to mind the differences.

The move comes in the wake of looting in Philadelphia after 27-year-old Walter Wallace was shot and killed by police on Monday. The decision comes after a fatal police shooting in Philadelphia triggered protests that saw some shops looted.

"I am not overconfident about anything", Biden told reporters one week ago.

"The optics may be more visible from him", she said of Trump, but "everybody's safety is what's so much more important than ego and bravado".

Biden spent part of Sunday pushing for votes in Philadelphia.

Monday 2 November 17:00 GMT / 12:00 EST: Trump's track record on climate issues has ranged from infamously labelling it a hoax of China's creation to make the United States less competitive, to supporting more job creation from fossil fuel industries in the US.

Bishop Millicent Hunter, a black pastor in Philadelphia, said that while she was confident of Biden taking Pennsylvania, she was on a mission "to encourage people that this is not a time to become complacent".

Polls showed Trump getting the support of 48.2% of likely voters in the Midwestern state versus 46.1% for Biden, who, however, is now in the lead in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Iowa, according to the poll tracker.

"Even if I win, it's going to take a lot of hard work to end this pandemic".

The state's top court ordered the extension and the Supreme Court refused to block it, though conservative justices expressed interest in taking up the propriety of the three added days after the election. Biden holds a polling lead over Trump in the state.

Trump presents himself as "a tough guy, a macho man", Biden sneered. In battleground states, Biden is leading by 3.7 percentage points.
